While I feel as though we had a pretty good week, there were two things that I can pinpoint that triggered meltdowns from my youngest of three with Autism.
Meltdowns are a very dynamic phenomenon because while it’s common for kids with Autism to experience them, the triggers, duration and severity of the meltdowns can and will vary from person to person.
As parents, I feel like we’re always on the lookout for things that will trigger a meltdown and then do whatever we can to avoid those triggers.
Sometimes triggers are obvious and other times, not so much. There are times when our kids will have meltdowns and we never know what’s triggered it. Typically speaking, we’re usually looking at sensory issues as the trigger to many, if not most of the meltdowns.
We had our fair share of meltdowns this week and I was able to isolate two triggers that were responsible. True to form, these are indeed sensory related.
Below are two pictures and I’d like to know what you think triggered the meltdowns. I would think these would be fairly obvious but then again, I live this everyday. I would bet a shiny buffalo nickel, that many of you will be able to relate to these pictures.
